How to Divide With Decimals

The division is an efficient way to subtract repeated data. It’s again the same with decimal numbers.

Let’s discuss stepwise how to divide decimals.

  • Dividing decimals with decimals.
  • Dividing decimals by 10s, 100s and 1000s.

A Few Solved Example

The Baker’s Oven sells the best croissants in the town. Each croissant costs $1.75. If Charlene needs to buy 45 croissants for her day picnic with her friends, how much will it cost her?

Step 1. Understanding the problem

We do that by eliminating unnecessary information:

The Baker’s Oven sells the best croissants in the town. Each croissant costs $1.75. If Charlene needs to buy 45 croissants for her day picnic with her friends, how much will it cost her?

Step 2. Translation and Evaluation

Translating the word problem into a mathematical formula

Cost of one croissant = $1.75

Number of croissants needed to buy = 45

Total cost of croissants = 1.75 × 45

Step 3. Solving it correctly and being specific about the unit.

Total Cost of croissants

= 1.75 × 45 

= $78.75

Solved Example

There are 21 sixth-grade Math books on the shelf of the school library. If the total width is 79.38 cm thick, what is the width of one book?

Solution

Step 1. Understanding the problem

First, we start by eliminating unnecessary information. (In this problem, we have a question to the point).

There are 21 sixth-grade Math books on the shelf of the school library. If the total width is 79.38 cm thick, what is the width of one book?

Step 2. Translation and Evaluation

Translating the word problem into a mathematical formula

Total width of the books in the bookshelf = 79.38 cm

No. of books on the shelf = 21

Width of one book = \frac{79.38}{21}

Step 3. Solving it correctly and being specific about the unit

So, the width of one book = 3.78 cm
